Tech Information: Beta Testing Sanitary Facilities Calculator

Posted on October 10, 2018

A common question in the design & use of buildings is - how many toilets do I need to provide for X number of people?                                                

Unfortunately, the answer to this question is not always an easy answer - I'm sure anyone that has tried to useTable F2.3 of the BCA will agree!  Thankfully, the authors of the BCA (the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB)) have developed a "Sanitary Facilities Calculator" for testing until Sunday 14 October 2018!  This calculator can be downloaded directly from the ABCB website at


Whilst not a final version, Knisco welcomes the release of this calculator and would encourage all our clients to use it and provide any feedback back to the ABCB.
